hmlen of Fresh Ranch Stock in a
Limited Way at 40c With Hest
April Storage at 35c; Chinese
' Stocks Are Hard to Dispose Of.
Great strength Is Bhown In the mar
ket Tor freHh ranch eggs of which sup
plies are ncant. Values today are rul
ing from 37 V4 to 40o a dozen. Unless
theie I a change In the situation it is
likely thai a 4Uc market will be general
at tlie opening af the corning week.
Current arrivals of fresh eggs are
so xcant that few of even the leading:
bonnes have any to offer, it is stated
that many of the Willamette valley
merchants are candlin their stock
and shipping their bent quality to the
northern markets and Bending the re
mainder to i'ortland. Thin is indicated
liv rinalitv (if nrcKfnt arrivals.
Cold storage stock is naturally be-
in a ded by the scarcity or nrst qual
Ity fresh offerings. Kastern eggs are
hemic sold as hiKh as rfoc a dozen.
These, arc so-called "fresh stock" but
so far as- can be ascertained they are
nothing but the best quality or April
storage. Ordinary storage eggs are
bHng held from 30 to 32 Vic a dozen.
Chinese crks are hard to sell at any
' While there remains a very good
tone for heavy lienn with sales as high
as 14c u nound. demand for lighter
hens and springs is less keen and
clean-ups are reported tit lower prices.
Kecelpts have not been noerai in any
While the general market is con
sidered merely easier, there is a re
port of sates of first class veals as
low as Kit: u nound along r ront street
during the last 1 hours. Hog sales at
ti '(, t'i 9c generally.

local producers who have the best"!
quality are unwilling to dispose of
them at this time.
Bent local stock could not be pur
chased from glowers below $1 a cen
tal at this time, while Idaho growth
of similar quality can be landed here
without the least difficulty in buying
at 85c to SOc. Two carload's of tlera
State stock are due in the local market
today and additional carload lots are
reported ordered for next week's de
livery. While there is a fair supply of lo
cal potatoes available of the second
or third grade, Jv'o. 1 stock has been
scarce here. Under quality stuff could
be obtained at lower prices with grow
ers showing some pressure to . sell.
There is no outside demand for sup
plies and the only call therefore is
for the home market.

There is a much firmer tone in the
wool trade throughout the United
States; in- fact, through the world.
Abroad there is not the slightest di
minishing demand for fleece and as
Kurope is showing a good demand for
more fleece than it has at home, it
is quite probable that instead of iiu-
ropean fleece being shipped in this
direction, that American wool will jro
to Kurope.
South American wools are coming
forward to the American markets, bu
the demand is so extraordinary that
there is no likelihood that it will have
any effect of decreasing the price
Sales of fleece at Atlantic seaboard
markets recently have been practic
ally of the greatest volume of tne
season to date. Prices have not only
held intact at the former high level.
but in some instances further d
vances have been forced.
Further efforts to contract the is J 4
clip at Oregon and other Pacific north
west points is reported at 20c. Thi
price is confirmed, but there is a re
port that as high as 21c has been
offered in the interior.

night. More chairs were brought in
and all found willing occupants.
Dr. Smith was noisily greeted when
introduced as "a man whose recoiid is
clean, a man who believes law is law
and put on the books to be enforced,
a man who can and will run the state's
business on business principles, a man
of the people who will work for th.i
people and wKp will carry out the will
of the peoplefand not the will of the
bosses." 1
"You are entitled to know who I
am," said Dr. Smith, as he rose to
speak. "I have lived in Oregon 25
years, most of that time in Pendleton.
I served in many public capacities in
my old home town, among them as
state senator from tTmatilla county,

it will be hard to maintain prosperity.

Why should there be requirement by
the legislative body that all the taxes
should be paid by April 1, or be penal

Committee Reports That Affair Was
Conducted Without Any Deficit;
Member Are Thanked.
Between 80 and 36 members of the
Apple day committee "were present tb,ls
afternoon at the final wfndup meeting
of the apple , committee. Which had
luncheon at the Commercial club.
At the meeting the various commit'
tees and -those who assisted in making
the day the success it was were pron-
erly thanked. C. C. Chapmah of - the
Oregon Development league presided
and officers of .the Commercial club
were present to hear the reports.
In a speech preceding the reports.,
Mr. Chapman reviewed the work done
by the committee and the successthat
attended Apple day. October 20. Quite
Incidentally he reported that there
was no deficit. i -
One of the best attended schobl
house meetings of the campaign was
held at- Lents last evening. The
speakers were: A. V. Flegel, Demo

sheriff; Roscoe P. Hurst, candidate
for Joint representative against C: il.
Hurlburt, who hag been repudiated by
the Republican organiation, and
Harold Warner, who spoke In behalf
of Dr. C, J. Smith, candidate for gov
ernor, and Senator Chamberlain.
Frank Lee presided.
Mr. Flegel spoke briefly Of hid busi
ness and professional life, and 'aid he
thought it might be taken for granted
that he was as well equipped, bo far
as experience in business and his per
sonal character and qualifications
were concerned, as any other candi

Duties Ara Orsat.
T am nominated by the Darty of the
administration," he said. "There is a
vast difference between the legisla
ture of Oregon and the congress of
the United States. The legislature
meets 40 days in two years and is a
lawmaking body only, and If it is dom
inated by one party, your own experi
ence has demonstrated the importance
of a governor with courage and firm
ness to hold them down.
"The congress is a lawmaking body,
but the duties of your congressman
are different. During the recesses of
congress he is your agent before the
various departments and bureaus. He
is the agent of Oregon and his district
as to all matters In which the state is
interested, such as the jetties, the im
provement of the rivers and harbors,
care and sale of timber and other
lands, regulation of reclamation serv
ice, grazing lands and innumerable,
other matters.
President Asks Tot of Confidence.
"If he is of the same party as the

from me to show that he will be bet

President Wilson has asked the people
to give him a vote of confidence in
November, and the only way you can
give him this vote is by voting for
Chamberlain for senator and Flegel
for congressman.
"That President Wilson has saved
this nation from war is admitted on
all hands. That by letting all nations
of the world know that he believed
that a treaty is a sacred obligation,
to be kept by the United States has
given him the confidence of the great
powers of the world, and they now

"The record for achievement In

Dairy Products Lower.
There has been considerable weak
ness throughout the dairy products
markets of the country recently. But
ter and cheese prices have shown con
siderable price losses and eggs have
not shown the strength in some places
that had been expected. The huge
quantities of cold Storage stock is one
depressing feature against anything
except strictly fresh stock.
Business Tery Brisk.
There is no lack of business offer
ing In many lines of trade. Some fac
tories are working to full capacity and
still are unable to fill their orders
promptly. If the demand for wooden
pails, butter kits and buckets is a true
barometer of business conditions, there
is a factory at Klamath that has the
bulge on forecasting. The bucket and
pail factory of Wood & Lens in that
city has received so many orders re
cently that an enlargement of facili
ties has been found necessary to take
care of the increasing business.

a contract with a Kansas City Institu
